Is Obama Stupid and Lazy?
The Western Center For Journalism ^ | Steve Baldwin

Posted on 02/17/2011 1:07:51 AM PST by Fighter@heart

Is Obama Stupid and Lazy? Although that’s quite a provocative question, evidence is mounting that Obama may not be as intelligent as his supporters and cheerleaders in the media constantly assure us. The reality may be that Obama is mostly a creation of the liberal media. Indeed, the more we dig into his past, the more we find very little substance and discover how a network of liberal professors, law firms, and others, gave him a pass on performance while he pursued his political agenda.

LOL...and this is just now being observed?

Wonder how voters would feel about putting their lives in the hands of an affirmative action pilot?

I have always said Obozo is NOTHING but a puppet.
Howdy Doody was, however, a bit smarter then Obozo.

I had the pleasure of working with the author of this piece, Steve Baldwin when he was a California Assemblyman from 1994-2000. A great conservative and all around decent guy. He and his group of activists built up the grass roots conservative majority in and around San Diego County back in the early 90s which for the most part remains in place today.

Agreed that Obama is a puppet. Lazy perhaps. Stupid? I don’t think so. The following link is to an old FR thread, about an even older conservative booklet called “The Revolution Was”, written in 1938 about FDR and the New Deal. It is ALL happening again - amazingly, chillingly so. Only worse.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2185147/posts

An Excerpt:

Worse outwitted were those who kept trying to make sense of the New Deal from the point of view of all that was implicit in the American scheme, charging it therefore with contradiction, fallacy, economic ignorance, and general incompetence to govern.

But it could not be so embarrassed and all that line was wasted, because, in the first place, it never intended to make that kind of sense, and secondly, it took off from nothing that was implicit in the American scheme. It took off from a revolutionary base.....

Having passed this crisis, the New Deal went on from one problem to another, taking them in the proper order, according to revolutionary technic; and if the handling of one was inconsistent with the handling of another, even to the point of nullity, that was blunder in reverse.

The effect was to keep people excited about one thing at a time, and divided, while steadily through all the uproar of outrage and confusion a certain end, held constantly in view, was pursued by main intention.

The end held constantly in view was power.

Understatement of the year. Yes Obama is a creation of the liberal media but he has an awful lot of idiots fooled.

The jug eared Kenyan may be stupid and lazy but that does not mean the people he has appointed are stupid and lazy. Oboingo is like Dean Martin who never showed up for rehearsals for his own show. All the hard work would be done then Dean would show up and wing it at the taping.

Many of Oboingo’s people are pit bulls. People such as

Ken Salazar (denies drilling permits)
Lisa Jackson (always keep an eye on this pig)
Katherine Sibelius (I call her skull Sibelius)
Robert Gibbs (accomplished liar like his boss man)
Eric Holder (stone racist)
Hillary Clinton (is she on downers or what?)

Everything in this article has appeared elsewhere. In fact, I think I have read a couple of articles in the past two years which have almost identical material in them.

And yet, the general public is still unaware of most of it.

The fact that he won’t release his academic records is very telling. Also significant is the fact that, other than his two books, there is precious little which has been published under his name. And Cashill has cast considerable doubt on the authorship of Dreams From My Father.

I certainly don’t think Obama is exceptionally smart or gifted. I don’t know if he’s lazy, but I am quite sure he is a fraud. And the deception was perpetrated or helped along by hundreds of liberals along the way, who felt that the end justified the means.

Confusing glibness and a decent vocabulary is a common error, there are many glib politicians who are nothing more than BS artists. Television picks up on the slick but seldom delves into the substance.

Anyone note he doesn’t have his daily briefing until 930 or so in the morning, each day? That is his first scheduled event each day, and it is later than bankers start work.

Yes and also not legal to be president. Maybe He could qualify for a dog catcher position, if he would show his birth certificate.

Never has a student passed through distinguished colleges and universities doing less than Obama. Did he ever even show up for classes at Columbia U? He is elected editor of the Harvard Review yet writes ZERO articles for that journal. Obama spent his entire life getting a pass to the next level without even showing up.

You are of course right about the evil agenda, as far as stupid goes it perhaps depends on your own definition of the word. Certainly the glaring errors of English usage indicate someone who could not pass a seventh grade English test from his mother’s time. The lapses into total incoherence on stage and the inability to speak without a teleprompter show evidence that he is anything but the genius that he has been purported to be by the left wing media. I will go on record as saying without fear of being wrong that the man could not pass a high school final exam from a South Carolina public school of 1961, the year he claims to have been born. Two subjects, English and History, would have been sufficient to deny him a high school diploma, there is no possibility of error in that statement.

Why can't someone be all four? Obama is clearly evil and twisted, which could be fatal to the United States. Our best hope is that he's also as stupid and lazy as he seems and will not be as effective as an energetic communist might be in destroying America.

Barry Soetoro, a.k.a Barrack Hussein Obama, is not stupid. He never worked a hard a day in his life, never made a single notable accomplishment, has no discernible interest outside of his own personal aggrandizement, hates America and everything it stands for yet is now the President of the United States and will live a life of luxrious ease the rest of his days.

The only question now is the more stupid, the people that voted for Obongo or the people that thought Juan McLame was going the save them from him.
